Ghosts of Mars

Revealing mistake: Have a look at the shot of the rear part of the train exploding as the locomotive pulls away from it. If there was ever a more obvious model shot, with cheesy, jerky bouncing toy trains and Action Man (TM) dolls, then I haven't seen it.

Revealing mistake: When Big Daddy Mars is set on fire in the police station he is wearing an obvious protective mask. His face lacks detail and the mouth doesn't move even though he's screaming. (01:11:07)

Continuity mistake: After Melanie's "plan A" failed since the train is not at the station the group fights its way back to the prison. During that fight they kill quite a lot of the possessed miners. But in one of the following scene when those freaks assemble in the streets and walk to the prison there are only four or five bodies lying around.

Melanie Ballard: Sounds nasty. But you seem to be holding up pretty well.

Trivia: Reportedly, the film was originally going to be titled "Escape from Mars," and was going to be a sequel to "Escape from New York" and "Escape from LA," with Kurt Russell reprising his role as Snake Pliskin. However, after "Escape from LA" bombed at the box office, the script was reworked, and Snake was rewritten into the character "Desolation" Williams.
